Sending warm Wednesday fuzzies!

Morning all,

Hope your week is coming along well.

I've a couple of cards to share with you today, the first was made as a kind of get well card, I had intended to send it to a pal but .... one of my friends bought it first.

My card
And a closer view of the image

  • Derwent coloursoft pencils to colour
  • Hero Arts sentiment stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink

WOW . . . You've been busy! Polar opposites they may be, but the 1st 2 cards both have the word "warm" in their sentiments! All 3 cards are lovely xxx

Wonderful makes Kathy and the house mouse and snowman are so cute and love your colouring and both have such pretty layers and sentiments, then the red sparkly hearts are very stylised and have that modern twist, perfect for the anniversary card. x
